How to install ireport on Ubuntu

Just a short note about how to install Jaspersoft iReport 5.6.0 on Ubuntu or any similar linux distribution.

Download iReport (Sourceforge Download).

Just run ./ireport inside the iReport/bin folder.

For Java 8: You will need to edit the iReport file using a text editor and change the line:

--jdkhome \'"$jdkhome"\'

to something like this line instead:

--jdkhome \'"/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64"\'

Let me know if this helped you. :)
